The VOX-Pol Blog publishes weekly articles on the topic of online extremism and terrorism. This year’s VOX-Pol Blog posts have covered issues with a global reach, such as incels, the far right, disinformation, online regulations, and platforms.

The Blog also covered research-related concerns such as researcher welfare and interdisciplinary collaboration. This year we featured four book reviews, a five-part series on The Base, and articles in French and German.
